Make it in March Exclusive In-Store Competition


Saturday 31st March – Hopefully you’re reaching the finishing stages of your Make In March project. Don’t forget to bring it into the store this Saturday for a chance to win a Rider No.4 plane!

Saturday 14th April – Join in-store expert Andre who will show you how to make a simple shoe rack using the UJK Technology pocket hole joinery system. This is a great opportunity to see why the UJK system is a must for every workshop.

Saturday 28th April –  Join us for the second of our ‘Back To Basics’ series. We’ll take a closer look at one of the oldest and most trusted tools in the woodworker’s chest – the hand saw. Still a favourite of skilled trade professionals, hand saws provide precision, speed and convenience which often rivals the performance of power saws. Come along and rediscover the versatility of hand saws.

Back to Basics event - Handsaws

As a result of the good turnout and feedback on our first carving class for the U3A Group, we will now repeat the afternoon on the 2nd Thursday of each month. Ask in store for more details.

U3A Carving Class

We recently joined the ‘Spice’ Time Credits programme for community service and our first workshop was an Introduction to Pyrography. It was a great success and we’ve already organised a follow up looking at carving.

Manager’s Message

With Winter still pushing back against Spring, we have been warming ourselves up with endless cups of coffee. So much so that we have decided to give our coffee station a makeover. Andre is undertaking the project and was eyeing up some of our new selection of timber planks, from supplier Wentwood Timber Centre. He has little chance of having a piece though, thanks to how quickly they are being sold. Don’t worry, we have more arriving soon!

A particular highlight this month was watching Malcolm, from the ‘Tuesday Turners’,  turn a lighthouse, impressive is an understatement! Come and see for yourself, I guarantee you will leave feeling inspired.

Also, Stacey turned her creative talents to Mother’s Day and produced a number of appealing and inspirational gift ideas. Come along and talk to Stacey or any of the team about using the scroll saw to create imaginative, personalised gifts.
